This little guy has PERSONAITY PLUS. He is funny, quirky, loving, sweet and can jump 3 feet vertically LOL
Melvin loves other dogs and is very social with new people...he just loves every one.
Melvin is house trained and crate trained. And he is looking for his FOREVER HOME. Is it you?
If you are ready for unconditional love, lots of fun times and laughter, then Melvin is your man.
Melvin is about 2.5 years old and weighs 40-45 lbs.
He is currently in the Middle TN area, but transport is provided for an approved adopter

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We work with families throughout the northeast, focusing on New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania to help match the right pet with the right family. Even if you do not live within those states, please still contact us if you are interested in one of our pets. It is our belief that good homes can be found in any area.
Unfortunately, due to logistics, we will not adopt to families who live west of the Mississippi, nor in Canada.

If you are interested in one of our pets, please contact us at:

When we receive your email we will respond with more information about the pet and our adoption application.

The procedure for adoption is
1) fill out the attached application and return to us via email
2) once we receive the application we will begin discussions to answer any questions either of us have and then decide whether to proceed.
3) If we proceed, a volunteer in your area will be secured to do your home visit and check your references
4) Upon approval of all that, we will finalize the adoption and the pet will be scheduled on the next available transport
5) The adoption fee covers spaying/neutering, age appropriate vaccinations, rabies, complete vet check (including fecal, heartworm test (if age appropriate) and preventative treatment for intestinal parasites and fleas/ticks), health certificate and transport to you

More about this rescue

Rookie's Rescue has merged with A.S.A.P Rescue, a 501 c 3.

Rookie's Rescue is committed to helping abandoned, neglected and abused pets, finding loving homes and
educating the public about responsible pet ownership with a strong emphasis on spaying and neutering. .

Rookie's Rescue is a virtual shelter, meaning all of our pets live in loving foster homes, not a facility/shelter environment. Almost all of the pets available are located in foster homes in TN, VA, NY or PA.

Rookie' Rescue saves pets from over crowded shelters and animal control facilities, who due to lack of space and overwhelming volume are forced to euthanize thousands of healthy, adoptable pets each year. We will also accept pets from owners who can no longer care for their pet. When the animal enters our program, they undergo a complete health check from a local vet to make sure the pet is healthy. The pet is treated for any medical needs, is brought up to date on all vaccinations and is spayed or neutered. The pet is then socialized and assessed by our behaviorist. When the animal has been determined healthy and socialized, it is placed for adoption.
